Thanks and Praise - The Lord has blessed St. John’s and Trinity with a new Pastor. Pastor Elect Thomas Cowell was assigned from the Fort Wayne Seminary. Let’s welcome him and his wife Hannah with individual cards of congratulations. There address is: Thomas and Hannah Cowell and daughter, Penelope at 5543 North Clinton St., Fort Wayne, Indiana  46825.   Also, there is a card in the back of the church for all members to sign.   We will send that to Thomas and Hannah before his graduation.  Please stop and sign it. As we continue to move forward and get more information we will pass it along to you


Kitchen Improvement Festival will be May 16th at 1:30.  Any church women who would like to help are encouraged to come.  Many hands make light work.  Lunch will be provided!


Kids of the Kingdom Preschool Registration is still open for all 3, 4 and 5 year olds for the 2017-2018 school year.  If you know of a child that would like to come, please pick up registration forms in the church office or call Jessie Parsons at 515-320-0501


Building Healthy Families: It’s been said that children may not always be good at listening to their parents, but they never fail to imitate them. The words you speak are less important than the every-day life you lead. Your children (and grandchildren) are constantly learning about life by watching you. What an immense responsibility. What an incredible privilege! Pray that God will help you to be the kind of adult that you want your child (or grandchild) to become. Lutheran Family Service
